- What are cryptocurrencies and how do they work ?: https://steemit.com/spanish/@fher/bienvenidos-al-mundo-de-las-criptomonedas
Now that you know a little bit about cryptocurrencies, I invite you to investigate more and to go further so that you get an excellent benefit from them.
How did my life in steemit begin?
I came to steemit through my mother-in-law, she told my wife and me that there was a web page that by publishing content of your own authorship, you generated income, that little detail aroused my curiosity.
"Can I generate income through a web page?"
For a moment I said; If I can spend hours and hours on facebook or instagram, reading posts from people I may know but in the end, just a waste of time, then why not experiment with steemit that I can learn, generate money and teach my knowledge to other people! .
And from one moment to another all change, steemit came to my life at the right time, I live in Venezuela, a country that is sinking into misery and anarchy, where unemployment and mismanagement abounds, unemployed living with an unemployed wife and two girls to keep a 3 year old one of 8 years old, it would be trite to tell them about the destructive economic situation that exists in Venezuela, but at the end of 2017, my wife and I felt desperate, without generating income with two girls to maintain, the world that we thought we were going to have, full of abundance, tastes, comforts was vanishing before our eyes and without being able to do anything to avoid it, I only thought about emigrating from the country, to be able to give our daughters a better future, At any cost, if I went to clean pocetas abroad I did not care because the work does not dishonor anyone, I just wanted my daughters to have a decent future, to study and be his studies would bear fruit, so that they would not experience the frustration of being professionals and not having a job opportunity to keep growing, I am a retired military officer, I am 32 years old at the moment. I graduated from the Military University Institute of Communications and Electronics of the Armed Forces, in 2007 at the age of 21, but I withdrew when I saw that the Armed Forces where I studied, where I swore to defend my country even at risk of my own life, was cracking at the immorality and corruption, could see a military institution that represents the best example of a country where they would supposedly be the best men and women of the nation, he was being plagued by thieves and immoral at all the senses, I lived things that I hope no one has to live, for that reason and for many reasons but it was that I retire, with a bittersweet feeling I said goodbye to the forces, a lifetime of dreams you see it collapse before your eyes and without being able to avoid it .
In that dark moment of my life STEEMIT arrived, as a door to salvation, I was able to obtain my account and from that moment my life and that of my family was transformed.
My first steps in steemit.
For me the first steps in Steemit were going to say it in a jocular way, crazy, without absolute knowledge of what he was doing, he only had in mind that he could make electronic money and that he could turn into the money he needed. I went dabbling without great benefits, but even so the little that generated in cryptocurrencies, helped us with household expenses and most importantly with food that is quite difficult and expensive to acquire here in my country. Currently many people in this community who are mostly not of Venezuela have dedicated themselves to humble ourselves, to criticize and call thoughtlessly ignorant, spam or other derogatory terms more but my good look is very easy to judge others without for a moment put in the shoes, or under the leaks of each one, although it is true when we are starting, we believe that this web page is about making money and then we do not consider that we are making nonsense publications and that they are considered SPAM. It is considered spam to the act of repetitively publishing content of low quality without meaning or out of context, only for economic purposes or with the intention of only making money, so it is important to investigate a little before starting to publish in steemit, so that Do not fall for these mistakes. Not that I'm saying that all new users are spammer if none of this, contrary am advocating new users that somehow through ignorance or omission are concurring in such mistakes, so do not do it and not be insulted , by people who believe that they are gods or owners of steemit, people who believe that they are above others and run over everyone in their path because they think they are superior. I think that if you are not comfortable with something that happens, the best thing is to talk, to guide the people who do it to make a better quality content or to correct their mistakes, it is the most civilized way to do it, not with insults and contempt, because we are all human and all living beings we must respect to be respected, is the law of the universe, known as the law of attraction. Leaving behind this issue of insults towards Venezuelans I continue.
